Wow! Here we are at the peak or finish line or what have you. Day 30! We did it (or are about to do it). Just remember that we continue poeming on Wednesdays throughout the year, daily again in November, and hit poetic forms on Fridays somewhat regularly. Here we go!
For today's prompt, write a moving on poem. Many people finish something (like a poetry challenge) and stop. But many April PAD Challengers keep moving on to the next prompt, next poem, next challenge. Let's keep it moving on. Thanks for poeming along this month!
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Keep peoming beyond April!
Write a poem every single day of the year with Robert Lee Brewer's Poem-a-Day: 365 Poetry Writing Prompts for a Year of Poeming. After sharing more than a thousand prompts and prompting thousands of poems for more than a decade, Brewer picked 365 of his favorite poetry prompts here.
Here’s my attempt at a Moving On Poem:
"Down the Road"
There are some things you can't unsee,
but others will be down the road
waiting for you to set them free
from Seattle to Tennessee
and the bright lights of NYC
or anywhere else that you go.
So there's some things you can't unsee,
but many more wait down the road.
(I often write more triolets during the month, so it feels right to spring into May with one. See you on Wednesday!)
